Thanks! My longest distance was 18 miles which I did 13 days prior to the race on a Sunday. The Sunday before that I did 15, and then the Sunday before that I did 13.9. Besides those runs I was just doing anywhere from 5-10 miles for training and pushing myself as hard as I could each run.
- When's the next one?
I think I'm going to do the Detroit half marathon (maybe full) in October and then I'm debating where to do my next full sometime next year. Definitely want to travel, I'm considering Jackson Hole Marathon next year.
Looks like #pubski is where we update the hubski folk (hubskiites? hubskians? hubskiers?) on what we've been up to, so I'll give it a shot. I'm training for the Charlevoix Marathon (June 23rd) and this past weekend got in a solid 14-mile run in 2hr 9min (9:18 pace) on a blistering hot afternoon. Hoping to get in a 20-mile run this weekend. If anybody has advice for race day please advise, this will be my first marathon. Exciting things are happening at my job and I'm continuing to crush it. I'm hype to continue to learn and overcome the upcoming challenges as they arise. Oh, and also went on the first date I've had in awhile and have another lined up for tomorrow. Life is pretty good. If I could do an emoji I would do the beer glasses doing a cheers right here.
Also, turns out to be a pretty boring NBA finals. I think the Cavs may win one but would not be surprised if the Warriors sweep the series. Let's hope Lebron can prove me wrong.
Hey WanderingEng it sounds like this was an awesome trip. I'd definitely recommend Big Bend for some great desert hiking.
- big bend is about ten hours depressing driving down i10 from austin
In my opinion, the drive is not so depressing. Nothing like the open Texas road. Just don't watch the movie Nocturnal Animals w/ Jake Gyllenhaal before making the drive and I would recommend making the drive early morning so you could arrive in Big Bend with a bit of daylight left. The hikes/desert in Big Bend is remarkable. I camped out in Terlingua, which is a small, very cool ghost town with a population of 58 just outside of the park. My fav part about spending time in Big Bend was being able to cross the border to Mexico via walking across a shallow stream. My brother and I were able to hang out in this little Mexican bar and enjoy a few beers before walking back across the stream to America.
